I tend to favor drama therapy (the use of creative/performance art forms in sessions), CBT, TF-CBT, Attachment, Narrative, DBT, Somatic , and Psychodynamic models.
I tend to think of therapy as tupperware, it’s the container where we can unload what is weighing us down. Our personal backgrounds; ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, religion, (dis)abilities, to name a few, are integral to who we are. These aspects can have a deep impact on the way we view, think of, the world and experience mental health. This is why a multicultural approach lays the foundation for my work with clients. Navigating healing while at the same time still existing within systemic oppression, marginalization, and erasure/assimilation is not easy. This is a safe container to do so.

Treatment is tailored to each individual person and is a collaborative effort between client and therapist. A holistic therapy approach is utilized, which is the combination of contemporary and alternative treatments with evidence-based practices to assist a person in achieving balance in mind, body, and energy. A deeper understanding of the whole self can lead to increased self-awareness, self-esteem, self-acceptance, and emotional/physical well-being.

My specialty is using somatic approaches "the felt sense" helping the client be in tune with the bodily processes especially when heavy emotions arise.
I am a MFT student trainee. My ideal client would be someone who is going through major life shifts that has created curiosity around their self identity and questions around their confidence in all aspects of life. Someone who struggles with anxiety and depression who does not feel as if they are "enough" and are having difficulties maintaining healthy relationships around them with a partner/s, friends, and family. Their goal would be to feel a sense of security within themselves exploring the stories and patterns that have led them to have these belief systems that are not supporting their best "Self".

As a trauma-sensitive, holistic clinician, I work through a mind-body-spirit lens, infusing somatic experiencing, psychodynamic, internal family systems, psycho-spiritual, and brain-based approaches.
Sometimes, life imposes barriers or rifts on our path, leaving us lost or stuck, uncertain of how to move forward. I support those who arrive at this place by holding a container for deeper self exploration and encouraging one's remembrance of their innate ability to heal and grow. Individuals connect with me for a trusted space to tend to wounds of developmental and ancestral trauma, sexual and domestic violence, and grief and loss. Others seek me out for support in cultivating an integrated awareness of themselves, their relationships, and their part in our world or to prepare for and process psychedelic journeys.

Life stressors and past experiences can take a toll on us - emotionally and physically in our bodies, sometimes without us even realizing the extent of the impact. Feeling down, holding onto past traumas, worrying about the future, feeling stuck, and questioning our self worth - these are all common human experiences, but we aren't necessarily taught how to cope with them. My role is to meet you where you're at and support you as you gain insight, understanding, and coping strategies, and do the work to heal your whole self - mind, body, and spirit.

Sharing our inner experiences with someone can often feel frightening, which is exactly why I place such an importance on connection and acceptance in the therapeutic process. I aim to create a safe environment that will invite my clients to delve deeper into their personal narrative, as I truly believe we are not built to process emotions alone. As humans, we all have a propensity to grow and become our true selves, unfortunately we aren’t always gifted with the circumstances to allow it. I am passionate about creating a space for not only self-discovery and self acceptance, but to allow clients to feel seen, heard, and valued.

Have you tried talk therapy before and still feel disconnected from your body? What if what’s “wrong” is focusing on what’s wrong even in therapy? There’s another way. I use a nervous system approach to help you get in touch with your body and heal from your past in a way that is gentle, at your pace, and compassionate. The hope is to help you increase presence, pleasure, productivity, inner freedom, and satisfying relationships with others and yourself without retraumatization of the past. As we move toward curiosity, ease, self-compassion, & joy, you may feel empowered to make choices from your deepest, truest, most embodied self.

Congratulations on addressing your therapeutic concerns. Taking this first step often is a powerful journey toward healing. it is my belief the relationship you have with your therapist is crucial to the rapid resolution of issues. I believe therapy should be a rewarding, hopeful and, whenever possible, brief process. A client's motivation to change and willingness to work is crucial to success. My belief is the combination of insight followed by action is the surest pathway to change. My practice is addressing the barriers clients perceive that stop them from living the life they imagine possible.

I understand that the road to parenthood does not always go as planned. It may include difficulty trying to conceive, pregnancy and/or birth complications, pregnancy loss, or rough postpartum periods. It can bring up some unexpected feelings like crying frequently, feeling overwhelmed and depressed, feeling disconnected, feelings of guilt/blame, having scary thoughts, lack of support, relational challenges and general difficulties with adjustment to pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum periods.
